Les Madieres

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Vire-Normandie, Calvados, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
Les Madieres is situated on nearly two acres of grassy lawn with gardens, an apple orchard, a pond, and a terrace.

A picturesque stone farmhouse that has been updated to a clean, modern residence inside. Lovely views from each bedroom over the south facing front garden, well away from busy roads with period pieces throughout that creates a feeling of retreat from day to day life. The home has been completely re-furnished with new beds, lounge furniture, kitchen dishes and pots.

Cool in the summer due to the stone exterior and cozy in the winter thanks to individually controlled rads in every room. A perfect merging of rustic and comfort!

**Some recent changes at Les Madieres include removal of our old canvas gazebo, which has been replaced with a permanent wooden pergola covering more of the terrace. We have also purcahsed a large kit...

Our family of five felt comfortable in this spacious holiday rental home. It is well off the beaten path, and very peaceful, but with easy access to major roadways and both village and city shopping. We found it a good base for exploring Basse-Normandie and...More

About the neighborhood
The Normandy region is bursting with activities and attractions. Sun-worshippers have plenty of choice for beaches. Granville is a direct train ride from Vire. The fashionable beach resort of Deauville is 1hr drive away—hit the casino, go shopping, and walk in the footsteps of Old Hollywood stars.

Of course Normandy is teeming with history and culture. Mont St. Michel, William the Conqueror, Rouen and Joan of Arc, D-day landing beaches, Monet’s Giverny, the Bayeux Tapestry...

Families and young children have plenty to keep them busy: Festyland amusement park, the Festival International de Cerf-Volant (Kite Festival!) at Dieppe, La Cite de la Mer Aquarium in Cherbourg, the Zoo de Jurques, the Chateau de Vendeuvre with talking mechanical figures, fantastical fountains and mazes.
